SEXUAL SIN IRRITATES GOD – 1 THESSALONIANS

holy

Human Body Is Temple Of The Holy Spirit

(Passage: 1 Thessalonians 4)

God commanded his children to abstain from the practices of fornication and adultery so that he can bless them. Since God is holy, anyone who desires to satisfy his standard must be holy as well. A person who maintains the sanity of his body to honor God will prosper in this life and in heaven. It is written in the scripture,

“For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God; that no one should take advantage of and defraud his brother in this matter, because the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also forewarned you and testified. For God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness” (1 Thessalonians 4:3-7 NKJV).

word of God

Believers Must Keep Their Body Pure

The practices of fornication and adultery are sinful; they irritate God, therefore believers must desist from them. People who engage in a sexual sin must also understand that the practices corrupt their bodies – Which is considered as the temple of Holy Spirit.

The scripture emphasized that human body is God’s temple, and it must be kept pure at all times (1 Corinthians 6:19). Anyone who prioritizes holiness will receive a special attention from God and be blessed.

Pray For God’s Grace To Be Holy

Dear God, I understand that my body is the temple of the Holy Spirit which I must keep pure at all times. I am sorry for any immoral activity that I have engaged in the past. I repent from them and I promise to start living a holy life before you. Please give me the grace and power to meet your expectations. Keep me qualified for your earthly and heavenly benefits. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen. => Subscribe here
